The exhaust manifold on the 3.0 liter engine often warps and cracks, breaking off the studs between the cylinder head and the exhaust manifold. The noise may be most noticeable when the engine is cold.

Great runner, easy maintenance, just clicked 450,000 kms 3rd owner. Now in the process of customizing
I have a 1991 Nissan Pickup SE with 208,000 and runs really great!
bought mine from an ebay classified ad. 1991 with 139,394 on it. came with all receipts showing the upkeep that was done by the man i bought it from, who was only the second owner. drove an hour and 15 minutes to pick it up for 700 bucks. a/c works and the body is excellent. apart from the peeling clear coat and no power steering, i have zero complaints
I traded for this truck; it's a regular cab with only A/C and power steering which is all I need. So far the truck has about 225,000 and seems to run well, though it's dog ugly and has some issues (not unexpected considering it wasn't taken care of ); the rear brakes were shot and leaking fluid for months, the body is rusting all over, the interior smells like a high school gym in the south (dip, sweat and musty carpet), the A/C compressor won't come on, several lights don't work, the steering wheel is just a metal rim and it needs front end work. Otherwise, the potential is there to make this my weekend project car.
One great thing about these old trucks is the availability of junk yard supplies. I picked up a spare rim, taillight, brake reservoir cap, rear view mirror and several interior trim pieces for $40 cash. Try getting any of those at the stealership for close to that (the brake reservoir cap alone was over $20, and they had to locate one). In fact, I found several Toyota and Pathfinder rims that would fit for cheap and may upgrade to 15's at some point.
Overall she's rough but is a lot fun to drive even in sad shape. I can't wait to get all the age out and get it right and road ready. Great little truck that's easy to fix and make pretty.
